GRA Summer Camp 2014 (3rd-5th May)

Group for Rural Activities (GRA) is pleased to announce GRA SUMMER CAMP 2014, which is going to be held at Bhatke Vimukt Vikas Parishad, Yamgarwadi, Tehsil- Tasgaon, Solapur, Maharashtra during 3rd to 5th of May.

This area has been a residence for Nomadic tribes. The Nomadic tribes have been an integral part of the Indian society yet a neglected one. Their problems are not only food, clothing and shelter but also the treatment meted out to them by the mainstream Indian society.The traditional source of their income like forest produce, singing, acrobatics, dramatic performances etc. becoming more and more difficult to cater therefore now the only solution is to educate them, help find new vocations or teach them to adapt traditional skills to the needs of modern times. Bhatake Vimukta Vikas Pratishtan(BVVP) has been tackling all these issues since last 22 years.

This camp will be a unique opportunity for us to understand another facet of our diverse society, their problems and possible solution model. We'll have detailed interactions with local people and try to learn about BVVP's
working model, factors responsible for their success and their future planning.
